Houston police and Crime Stoppers need your help to find four men who reportedly terrorized a woman after she left a Galleria-area night club last month. It was back on January 4 when the 24-year-old victim left the club and was driving down Westheimer. Police say when she stopped at the intersection of Westheimer and Hillcroft, four men wearing ski masks opened all four doors of her car and jumped inside. One of the suspects reportedly struck her in the head with a gun and forced her into the trunk of her car.

Police say the suspects drove around in the victim's car for several hours before releasing her on the northeast side of Houston. They then took off in her car.

The victim was transported to the hospital, where she was treated for injuries.

During the carjacking, one of the suspects reportedly removed his ski mask and the victim was able to provide police with enough of a description to produce a composite sketch, which is above. The other suspects are only described as black males between 20 to 30 years old.

Crime Stoppers will pay up to $5,000 for any information called in to the 713-222-8477 tips hotline or submitted online at www.crime-stoppers.org that leads to the identification, charging or arrest of any suspect in this case. Tips can also be sent by text message - Text TIP610 plus your tip to CRIMES (274637). All tipsters remain anonymous.
